Wambali

Biography

Wambali Mkandawire is a Malawian jazz musician.

He was born in the Congo to Malawian parents from the Mlowe village in the north and then later lived in Mzuzu. He wanted to become a musician but his grandparents were against the idea since he was still a student. When he dropped out of school in the 1970s he put his efforts into music. Wambali's music fusion style has been celebrated as a pioneering sound in Malawian Jazz music.[citation needed]

Wambali continues to live in Mzuzu where he is setting up a mission rural center and pastoring an indigenous church. Together with his wife, they have started a publishing company, “Kajimete Arts Publishing,” to help promote Malawian talent.
